Skype with Video on Android Updated: Thunderbolt, DROID Charge, Revolution and Others Now Supported


Hard to believe, isn’t it?  The HTC Thunderbolt, the device that was supposed to kick off the Skype with Video campaign back in March is just now receiving it almost a month and a half after it was released to the Android Market.  The Skype team didn’t just stop there though and actually added 17 other top devices including the DROID Charge, LG Revolution and Samsung Galaxy S II to the supported list.  It looks like they’ve adopted the same model as Netflix (slowly but surely), but we’ll admit that we are still happy that it’s making its way onto some of our favorite phones.  

Oh, we should probably point out that if your phone is running 2.2, like the Thunderbolt and Charge, you won’t be able to use your front camera with it.  Not sure what exactly Skype is thinking, but that’s what we have.

Here is the list of newly supported devices:

Acer A5
HTC Desire (2.2)
HTC Desire HD
HTC Evo 3D
HTC Evo 4G
HTC Flyer
HTC Incredible S
HTC Sensation
HTC Thunderbolt – Verizon (2.2) (US only)
LG Revolution – Verizon (2.2) (US only)
Samsung Droid Charge – Verizon (2.2) (US only)
Samsung Galaxy S
Samsung Galaxy S II
Samsung Galaxy Tab
Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro

    Seems silly… like “123” notes; the beta version allowed camera switching on the Thunderbolt. Now the beta won’t even run… What’s up with that? I think I’ll market the flip up mirror for the Thunderbolt so the camera can see your reflection 🙂

    I have had it wih Skype and the Thunderbolt. What a crappy experience. It’s the entire reason many of us bought the Thunderbolt. Now the FFC doesn’t work with it? WTF? why even bother? It worked great with the leaked beta. Very disappointing… Thanks for nothing!
